Do you mean what's the association of Mount Olympus and the Greek Gods?. If so, Mount Olympus is the mountain of which the Greek Gods lived on top.
hey sat in their thrones the women goddesses are on one side and men goddesses on the other
Just after Zeus dethroned his father Cronus, he and his siblings fled to Mount Olympus and made it their home and dwelling.
Unfortunately we cannot ask the gods. They just settled there, it was the highest point they could find.
There are many gods in the greek pantheon possibly hundreds.. However only 24 of them (12 gods and 12 goddesses) were considered to be the Olympians.. Another answer: . No, sorry, 12 olympians, not 24.
The were many minor gods that didn't live on Olympus. The only major god that didn't was Hades who lived in the underworld. It is also believed that Hercules didn't live on Olympus. He was a demi-god.
Zeus- king is the gods, lord of the sky Poseidon- brother of Zeus, god of the sea, Earth-shaker Hades-brother of Zeus, god of the dead Demeter- goddess of summer, crops and nature Athena- goddess of wisdom and battle Apollo- god of healing and music, and the sun Artemis- virgin goddess of …hunting and the moon Aphrodite- goddess of love Hephaestus- god of forging and metal work Ares- god of war Hermes- messenger of the gods, god of travellers, thieves, performers etc. Dionysus- god of wine Hope this is helpful!

Ancient Greeks believed gods and goddesses lived at the top of Mount Olympus because its peak was always shrouded with clouds. Of course, no one thought - or had the resources to- climb the mountain to see what was there.
i know the thrones were arranged in a U-shape, like a horse shoe. at the very end, hera sat on the left and to her right, Zeus sat. to the right of Zeus was poseidon. all gods sat on the right side and all the goddesses sat on the left. idk the rest, but im positive it said it in one of the Percy Ja…ckson books (MORE)
Everything! Holidays, festivals, theatre, art, weaving, fishing, hunting, farming, every aspect of Greek daily life was spent in worship or thanking of the Gods. Greeks would pray for safe travels, offer sacrafices for good lifes, and at one point Children would even donate all of their toys to Apol…lo and Artimis. People observed relgious festivals of fasting and feasting, donated money went out on certain days and constantly worshipped the all powerful gods (MORE)
Some live in Mt. Olympus. Hades lives in the underworld and the others are scattared around.
They ate ambrosia and drank nectar. Also some believe that the gods and goddesses had more than just that. The question has been thrown around still. But nothing shows this hypothesis to be correct so it is just believed to be Ambrosia and Nectar.
Pretty much like humans: they help each other, hinder each other, love each other, hate each other, and so on.

The Greeks based all their beliefs on their imagination not based on science. Mount Olympus is the highest mountain in Greece, so they believed that Zeus(supream ruler of the gods and ruler of the sky) threw lighting bolts down from the mountain duing thunder storms. of course the Greeks couldn't ac…tually see the gods because mount Olympus's peek is surrounded by clouds.

They did not tell us. But it was the highest place they could find in Greece.
No not all Greek God's live on Mount Olympus. There are minor gods like Hestia and Janus. They do not live on Mount Olympus, only the major 12 do.
Zeus (Jupiter in Roman mythology) was the King of the gods and lived on Mount Olympus.
They found it a nice high place where they had a good view of what people did.
Olympian rulers: Hera Athena Artemis Aphrodite Demeter Hestia, then later Dionysus who took her place. Hephaestus Zeus Apollo Ares Poseidon Hermes
This question can't be definitely answered as myths differ. The main residents of Olypmus are Zeus, Hera, Hebe, Iris and later Hercules. However, all the other gods have access to Mount Olympus and according to some myths like that of Phaeton, every god has a house in Olympus.
There was much more than 12, but there WAS 12 main ones that sat in Olympus. It was the major gods and goddesses. There was 6 girls and 6 boys origianally. Zues (king of the gods and master of lightning), Posiedon (God of the sea), Ares (God of war), Hermes (god of travellers and messaging),… Apollo (god of prophecy and music and healing), Hephateous (God of fire and building) , Athena (goddess of wisdome and war strategy), Aphrodite (Goddess of buety), Artemis (goddess of the hunt, wild things, and maidens), Demeter (goddess of the harvest), Hera (Queen of the gods and goddess of marraige), and Hestia (goddess of the hearth) . but Hestia gave up her spot for Dionysus (god of wine and madness) which threw off the balance.

THey believed that because it was the tallest mountain in Greece so they thought that how they watched over them or that how they got to the sky.
Hercules is said to have become a god after his mortal death. Also, the only Olympian demigod was Dionysus; who was son of Zeus and Semele, who became the goddess Thyone.
On Mount Olympus, but they believed their gods and goddesses were anthropomorphic, being able to change into humans.
Ancient Greeks did not have the same technologies and tolerances that we do. So, when people tried to climb Mount Olympus and never returned, their friends and family thought that the Gods disintegrated the climber.
Seeing as he was one of the 12 Olympians, I'll go ahead and say "Probably."
SInce Greeks didn't have science, they needed ways to explaincertain things. So they came up w/ the gods

No, despite being shown as such in the 1980 classic, Clash of the Titans , Thetis is not an Olympian. While she was an ancient goddess (a granddaughter of Tethys, the Titan who ruled the seas with Oceanus). Thetis' only relevance in mythology is from a prophecy of Prometheus, who warned Zeus (who …was wooing her at the time) that Thetis would bear a son who would eclipse his father in power. Zeus married Thetis to Peleus, and she bore him a son: Achilles. (MORE)

I am assuming that you meant 'made', not 'mad'. Anyway, it is probably Hestia, goddess of the hearth.
because the Olympus mountain was the highest mountain in Greeceand it's summit is covered with snow and hidden by clouds whichmakes ancient greecs belived their must be something in top ofit.
the 12 were Jupiter, hera, diana, apollo, bacchus, neptune, mars, venus, mercury, ceres, prosperina, and vulcan. You can count hestia but shes just goddess f the hearth and doesn't have a throne. --- Roman God and Goddesses and Greek Gods and Goddesses are not the same!

They thought that gods caused natural disasters, how theworld came to be, and death. There were no other explanations atthe time, so that is what they believed. Well, …they made up these gods from constellations. (a group ofstars that form an imaginary picture) They thought what they sawwere real so they made up the myth. They thought the gods put ofthe constellations for the Greeks to know about them. (MORE)
